In this vedic horoscope, Jupiter is debilitated and united with exalted Mars. Jupiter rules over fourth and seventh houses of this horoscope; and its union with exalted Mars (lord of third and eighth houses) is not desirable. The lord of second and ninth houses is Venus and the same is exalted in seventh house. Venus, however, is combust and united with twelfth lord Saturn. Mercury, lord of ascendant and tenth house, has gone to sixth house and become weak. Eleventh house lord Moon is badly placed in eighth house. Due to weakness of Mercury, the native faced problems in managing his money. He tried to gain some money through share trading, investment in property, and property dealing; but due to weakness of Mercury and ill placed Moon, he failed to properly manage his money and had subsequent losses. The affliction of Mars to Jupiter has made him pro-active; due to which he could not gather required social and professional support during unfavorable circumstances. The exalted Venus and well placed Saturn has blessed him with good inheritance and established business. Fifth lord Saturn is well placed, therefore, complete inauspicious influence of Mercury is not there. However, due to weakness of Moon, he often faces obstructions in his regular income and finance.
This vedic horoscope belongs to famous bollywood actor, Amitabh Bachchan. As can be seen, Mercury is exalted in eighth house but become combust due to being too close to the Sun.
